If you are over 20 weeks pregnant and experience complications with your pregnancy you may be referred to our day assessment unit (DAU). We run an appointment based service and are open Monday-Friday from 8.30am to 4.30pm.
During your appointment at the DAU, you will be assessed by a midwife, who may involve a doctor in the consultation if appropriate.
Your assessment could include:
- Observations, including your blood pressure, pulse and checking your urine
- Monitoring your baby’s heart rate
- Blood tests
- A scan being booked for you
If you require further follow up in the DAU you will be given an appointment time to come along and see us.
What to bring with you
Please bring your green notes with you when you come in for an appointment, scan or to have your baby.
You might want to bring a book or magazine to read in case you need to wait for results or to see a doctor.
We are developing a telephone triage system in the near future that will be answered by a midwife to answer questions
